Being one of those wankers who get to drive all sorts of great motorcars I
can sympathise with getting into a strange vehicle and trying to drive it
correctly. I must admit that I do have some problems with crash boxes in the
RR Silver Ghost, Bugatti and Invicta that I have driven recently.

Having admitted that, I do appreciate that the technology and metal in such
cars is getting on in years and they should be driven with appropriate
empathy for both the car and audience.

Personally I think the driver should have familiarised himself with the car
a little before his drive was videoed.

an idiot, but we know Healeys he's probably never driven one before let
alone campaigned one...and it is great to see the Macklin car back on the
